Chain link commercial fencing

Wood and chain link are two of the most commonly used commercial fencing. Wood works particularly well for apartment complexes and school facilities, whereas chain link is great for parking lots and storage facilities, parks and sport fencing.

In fact, most businesses use chain link fencing for security reasons. While the height of the fence can be anywhere from 4′ to 12′, most commercial applications only need 7′ (6′ chain link, plus a 1′ top of barbed wire). Commercial chain link fencing includes corner posts, line posts, and a top rail.

The outside corners of a chain link fence are called corner posts. In order to make sure the fence is stable, the posts are set in concrete, 36″ deep in the ground. Next, the line posts must be set in concrete 24” deep and 10 feet apart; their outside diameter depending on the type of commercial application. Finally, the top rail of the fence is made from pipe and has the primary goal of bringing stability to the chain link fabric attached to it.
